The Ayachis are a French Muslim family whose patriarch, Bassam, and son, Abderahman, have been radicalized by world events and propelled by a sense of ancestral religious duty to return to defend their syrian homeland. Over three years, filmmaker Stéphane Malterre captured their dramatic lives in Syria, fighting against Daesh (also known as Is) and Bashar al-Assad’s regime. Family members who remain in France weigh in on their loved ones’ situation and sacrifice, telling an incredible story of integration, fundamentalism and the gap between Western and Eastern cultures.
